Thichum Forest Products is a forestry company operating on behalf of all ɬaʔamɩn Nation members. Our primary function is the sustainable management of ɬaʔamɩn Nation’s natural forestry resources.
Vision and Mission
ɬaʔamɩn Nation is a healthy, thriving, and culturally strong community that respects our people, water, lands, and resources and embraces our Ta’ow (teachings) in all that we do. Our mission is to honour our ancestors and our Ta’ow through responsible stewardship of our territory and resources, and open and accountable decision making in the best interests of Tla’amin people – past, present and future.
Thichum is built on many values. As a business, we manage to the quadruple bottom line. This means we put equal value in social, economic, environmental, and cultural values.
Translation – Thichum means “deep into the woods” in the ɬaʔamɩn language.
“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors,
we borrow it from our children.”
